For 2019, Lens Manufacturing trends are pointing to the future. There are two key trends you need to consider when providing conveyor systems to end users.
The first is the use of manufacturing execution software (MES) to improve operations. Implementing MES in system design yields a greater level of efficiency.
The second is the creation of mega-labs. The industry is replacing smaller lens labs with centralized locations. This trend is gaining steam worldwide. With this emerging trend, lens manufacturers are gearing towards efficiency, and require larger systems to operate the lens manufacturing hubs.
Keep both these trends in mind when assessing a Lens Manufacturer’s needs in a conveyor system.
